Dropkick Murphys clarify details for Paradise show

, Staff

As reported on Monday, the Dropkick Murphys are adding to an already busy week of St. Patrick’s Day festivities by making plans to close out the weekend with one last show at the intimate confines of the Paradise Rock Club. Tickets for Sunday, March 20 show went on sale via Ticektmaster on Monday morning, unknowingly to the band who state they had not given the company permission to do so. The band had planned to perform a small club show for friends, family and fans to benefit the Claddagh Fund. However, after tickets were quickly snapped up by mostly scalpers on Monday, the band has asked Ticketmaster to withdraw the tickets for the show.

Instead, the group will sell tickets for the show through the Claddagh Fund’s official website on Saturday at 10 a.m. To be able to attend the show, fans will need to make a $40 donation plus a $2 handling fee per person to the Claddagh Fund. There is a four ticket purchase limit per person for the show and no hard tickets will be made available. The purchaser must provide the name of the guest at the time of purchase. That name will be added to a list that will be at the door on show day and can not be changed under any circumstances.

As previously reported, the Dropkick Murphys will be touring in support of their highly anticipated forthcoming release, Going Out In Style. The album, the Boston band’s seventh full-length studio effort and first in over three years, will hit stores on March 1 through their own Born & Bred Records. Produced by Ted Hutt (The Gaslight Anthem, Flogging Molly), Going Out In Style is a concept album that features a guest spot from Bruce Springsteen.
